PRELUDE TO TURNING IT OVER

lee_broom

No one wants to be ordinary but everyone follows the crowd.

Uniquity? Popularity?

Those who seek to have their apple turnover over and over must first snatch it from the jaws of those members of The Apple Turnover Club to which they now belong.

Look at ’em go….(who am I talkin’ to?)

And, as for that cherry turnover? They look alike, you know.
They look exactly alike.

THE HATER

EASTER

 

THE HATER 

 

SUBJECT: HATE

A: THERAPEE (the hater)
B: THERAPIST

 

A therapist friend of mine told me that I was a real hater. She said that I use the word “hate” frequently.

A: And you think that makes me a hater?

B: Well, yeah. Why else would you say it? Didn’t you tell me a few minutes ago that you saw a film last night that you really loved?

A: Oh yes. It was a wonderful movie, a great story; I loved every minute of it.

B: Loved? Or Liked?

A: Oh, well I guess I liked it a lot. I see what you mean.

B: Dontcha just hate it when that happens?

CELEBRITY STATUS (THERE’S NOTHING LIKE IT)

Scarcity begets Popularity.

If you wear a skirt, a shirt or you read the morning paper while sitting in a beautiful chair created as a limited edition of ONE or if you possess a tidbit of knowledge which has not yet entered the realm of COMMON SENSE you may soon be celebrated by those whose clamor for attention fails to bridge the gap between the world of regular stuff and the world of scarcity…

You could soon become a Celebrity…

So much for scarcity…

And exclusivity.

MUD PIES

Competitive spirit, the will of the weak
Line item listings
Of proof.
Wasted moments of life without purpose
Uncomfortably
Long of tooth.

So where are they now; What purpose was served
What evidence
Did survive?
(Arms out. Now walk. Now jump up and down.
Replicate
Signs of Life.)

Competitive spirit; no more to be seen.
Line item listings
Gone.
Service to Others; a life now with purpose
Confidence second to
None
Life again moving
Along.

THE MYSTERY OF THE FRAYED COLLAR

What could be more comfortable

Than a frayed collar

On the white, broadcloth dress shirt

That you wore to the 2012 convention?

Did your guy win?

Did you win?

Were you wearing a Windsor knot?

Is that shirt with the frayed collar still hanging in your closest?

Will you wear it beneath the jacket of a hand tailored DC suit when you cast your ballot in 2016?

Enjoy.

(And while you’re at it, wear your best, black, knee-length socks.)
